Yeah, get something like a Canada Goose. The Fjallraven Cantwell is also an excellent cold weather jacket (the warmest non-technical jacket I've ever owned). I don't really need it in Vancouver.
I have the Fjallraven Cantwell as well and it's plenty warm for standing in the dog park on January and February nights in Toronto. It's a really great jacket -- definitely what I would recommend for a casual winter jacket.post #123 of 21711/16/11 at 12:54pmpost #124 of 21711/17/11 at 12:45amI need help. I'm 6'4 and looking for a sharp casual winter coat in a tall size. I'm partial to wool. Ive tried the Jcrew and Schott peacoats and had to send them both back because they just didnt look right. What options are out there for me? Anyone else been in in a position like this?
Thanks.post #125 of 21711/17/11 at 1:27ampost #126 of 21711/17/11 at 10:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by kidtwist91

Look on Vintage Trends. You might find something used of good value there or Gear Trade. I'm also a small guy and finding perfectly fitting clothes sucks. I usually wear large but in some brands I can fit in medium. I have to put up with the fact that being smaller than 6 ft means I have to live with certain compromises in clothing fit although there are speciality outfitters that do cater to us height-challenged guys.post #129 of 21711/19/11 at 8:51ampost #130 of 21711/19/11 at 4:46pmpost #131 of 21711/19/11 at 4:52pmpost #132 of 21711/19/11 at 9:31pmQuote:Quote:
Krane is actually having a sale on Friday and I think its 20% off the outerwear, which makes their pieces way more affordable. Would you know how warm it is compared to CG? If not, I might be getting a chilliwack.post #133 of 21711/20/11 at 3:48amQuote:
I have a Merino Wool Chilliwack. Its like wearing an electric heater around your upper body. Its toasty warm.post #134 of 21711/20/11 at 5:32amI honestly think CG is too warm most of the time, and ill fitting in terms of cut, since the jackets aren't really made to form nicely to your body. The construction and details just make the jacket stand out a lot more, and i think they will be plenty warm for the winter. They're all heavyweight waxed cotton with wool blanket lining, which I think is warm enough for the winter unless you're just standing outside doing nothing. The Krane jackets will be 20% off, they were on sale at some places alreadypost #135 of 21711/20/11 at 9:09amQuote:Originally Posted by fungz0r

I disagree. I just got the Canada Goose Chateau. CG has a line of "slim fit" coats. I can attest that the Chateau (and other models like the Langford, Citadel) form tight against your body. Unlike a model like the Expedition which is a relaxed cut and looks rather bulky, their slim fit coats accentuate a slim build (if you have one).
In terms of warmth, something like the Expedition is indeed too warm for many to wear most times during the winter. It's really only meant for extreme cold conditions (or spending long periods of time outside during cold days). However the Chateau (and I'm assuming others in the slim fit line) are definitely warm but not nearly as warm as the Expedition. The warmth of the Chateau reminds me of a high-end long wool coat. This is good for most consumers however if you are looking for a serious level of warmth go with the Expedition or something along those lines.
